Back in December, I posted about engraving my son’s steel tools. Turns out the black impact sockets would not cooperate. We think they may be black all the way through.
However, his silver-colored tools engraved very well with marking powder. It came with instructions to put alcohol up to the line in the jar and mix. I pained it on his tools, and after a few failures, ended up with a pretty good run. I only took pictures of the good ones.
I used scrap wood I had saved, thinking I can surely do something with the extra around that hole I just cut to remove my engraved piece. I placed it on the bottom of the GF without the crumb tray. We added or subtracted layers as needed for the various tools. Rounded parts dropped down into the holes of the wood, while straight parts remained level. It was perfect!
Here is a photo of some of the best ones. So proud of myself! My son was happy too.
